Campground Camping

This campground is an excellent place for tired travelers to pull off of the highway for a quiet rest.  All of the sites set back amongst ponderosa and lodge pole pine trees.  A creek runs through the entrance of the campground helping to muffle the sounds from the nearby highway.  A great place for families to stay as a base camp to explore the surrounding forest.  This campground becomes more popular during big game hunting seasons in fall and early winter.

Fire Information Camp fires are allowed at this time.
